Happy 4th of July!
Here in DC, we had a great Shabbat. As mentioned earlier, we went over to the Lincoln Memorial for Havdallah and had some time to check out the monuments at night. The students all played an active role in planning our Shabbat Activities. We had a couple great student taught sessions discussing pluralism as well as some hot political topics.
Now we are ready to celebrate! We spent the morning doing a Patriotic themed scavenger hunt through our Nation’s Capitol. We got to test everyone’s US knowledge. (Pictures to come!) The group gathered for a picnic and some down time, followed by Burgers, hot dogs, and the whole 4th of July Spread. After dinner, we walked down to the National Mall for music, fireworks, and many celebrations.
